Votes expected on constitutional amendments

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -

The state Senate is expected to vote on two constitutional amendments on Thursday.

Both measures are sponsored by Republican Sen. Brian Kelsey of Germantown.

One would prohibit any state or local taxation of payroll or earned personal income, and the other would allow the governor to appoint appellate judges, subject to legislative confirmation.

Under legislative rules, both measures will be read a third time before being discussed for a possible vote.
